Call me a glutton for punishment but even after the Twins pissed the last two late game come backs down their legs I decided to buckle up and watch the game against the Rays. It appeared to be another colossal waste of time for the majority of the game but the "Little Engine" again kept it interesting long enough that I couldn't manage to change the channel. This might have been because NBC's Thursday night season premier's don't start until next week or it might be because my gambling, degenerate friend Bogart predicted that the Twins would end up winning the division despite their miserable play of late. This provided just enough optimism to sit through one more potential heart breaker.
Finally the Twins delivered. It wasn't because of good pitching, because the bullpen again failed miserably, or clutch fielding because we coughed up another unearned run. Shockingly the Twins bats kept the playoff push alive. Lets also not forget Gardy going to into his deep bag of tricks and calling in the fake bunt, slap a double to left call from the dugout. Sidler may chalk that call up to randomness but that is called great managing. I also particularly enjoyed
WWWWWWWW aka Debbie Downer gave the Twins no chance this season. Only a miserable SOB can continue to harp on the Twins current situation. They are 1.5 games out with 11 games to play. If you can't shelve your negative attitude for 2 weeks and get behind your baseball team then you should find a new hobby or buy a Red Sox hat.
Maybe the Twins don't can't catch The Sux. Maybe they make the playoffs and lose in the first round. I for one could give 2 craps. They had no shot at the beginning of the year and have made this season interesting.
Matt your post wreaked of envy thus proving Bogart's theory. The Twins win year in and year out despite your laundry list of negativity. You are a hater and a loser.
